Blogging is alive and well amongst tennis fans, and it’s awesome.
I’ve read so many fabulous articles this January in the lead up to, and during, the 2011 Australian Open. They are all brilliant – worthy of fireworks!
It seems like everyone has their tennis blogging niche. I’ve read blogs about match reviews, the schedule of play, predicting who will win, the post match interviews, videos of the highlights, what the players are doing in their spare time, as well as who’s wearing what or doing what with their hair.
I’m planning to write an article (or two) about Tennis Blogs and Tennis Bloggers.
If you’d like your blog to be included, just leave a comment below and include these details:
- Name of your blog
- Your tennis niche eg what kinds of topics you write about
- Your Twitter user name
- How you most want your readers to receive your blog articles eg via Twitter, subscribe via email, RSS feed etc
- Anything else you’d like to share.
If you’re new to blogging and looking for a way for your readers to Subscribe to your blog, try Feedburner, it offers both RSS feed and email. (I don’t think RSS Readers are as big in Australia as they are in the USA and other parts.)
Personally, I love Mail Chimp for a RSS to email feed because you can customise your email template and add a header image. Plus it’s free until your list reaches 1000 subscribers.
Interested in Guest Blogging?
Guest blogging is a way to build links for SEO, and give your blog more exposure. If you’re interested in guest blogging for this Grand Slam Gal blog I’d love to discuss the options, particularly if you’re going to the French Open, Wimbledon or the US Open this year.
Looking forward to finding out more about your blog in the comments.

I just want to mention I’m newbie to blogs and really savored you’re blog site. Probably I’m going to bookmark your site . You certainly have wonderful article content. Appreciate it for sharing your web page.
Thx Jen, I see nothing wrong with bias where tennis is concerned!
My blog is Racquet Required http://racquetrequired.blogspot.com/ and it provides commentary, news, and a few laughs on the ATP Tour. A little biased towards the Americans, Spanish, and Serbs. 😉 I’m also @RacquetRequired on twitter.
Cheers Jodi, I find your highly biased opinions are highly entertaining
Thanks for including your info Erik, your blog is a great mix of facts and fun

Thanks for your kind comment on my site! Adjusting the Net provides fresh news, commentary and analysis from the world of professional tennis. I don’t try and cover every single match played, but I will do my best to highlight what I find interesting, inspiring and, my favorite, downright strange about this great game.
I will often examine how tennis, both the professional sport and the game, are portrayed by the media. From time to time I will also do reviews of books, TV shows, magazines, and products that focus on tennis.
Readers can keep track of my posts via Twitter (@Adjustingthenet), Facebook and my RSS Feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/AdjustingTheNet)
Hey GSG! My blog, as you know, is Tennis From Beyond The Baseline (http://tennisfromthebackseat.blogspot.com), and it is a highly biased, highly uneducated daily look at the tennis tournaments and matches going on around the world. I also really like picking out up and comers who I think are going to be awesome. Special favourites include Federer, Mahut (of course!), Golubev and Lisicki.
And my twitter name is, of course, @JodiMcA.
Your site looks good. I added it as a bookmark and I’ll follow you on Twitter.
My site is http://thisweekintennis.com and my Twitter name is @TennisThisWeek
Thanks Ahmed, your blog is great for those who love tennis, and love to laugh 🙂

Name of Blog: “Come Get Some Tennis”
Users can receive blog articles via Twitter, subscribe and RSS
I generally try to cover as much of the tour as I can making the blog personal and fun yet not too informative like the mainstream news sites.
